As a NASCAR fan, I understand that we are not immune to participating in annoying behavior at the track. We got our over-inbibers, mullet wearing shirtless beer bellies, redneck fist fights, and the dudes who point at their driver on every single lap giving them the “let’s go” roundup with their hands.
But the sheer sound of the engines wailing from 43 stock cars racing around the track certainly does distract from “the usual” annoying fan behavior that is commonplace in other sporting venues.
Take those South African vuvuzelas, the buzzing sound that emits from those plastic horns has made as many headlines as the 2010 FIFA World Cup itself.
While it is a cultural thing and are “essential to an authentic South African football experience,” you have to admit, the sound of a large hornet’s nest buzzing over the airwaves can become a bit tiresome.
To say the least.
The beauty of being a NASCAR fan is that there isn’t much room for distracting sounds and other extracurricular activities.
Because we are already deafened by the sound of 130 decibels expelled by a field of cars at full throttle.
